At Francis House we are extremely grateful for the tremendous ongoing support we receive from our local Golf Clubs.
We are privileged to have been chosen by the Captains and Lady Captains of many clubs across the north west as their charity of the year. This support has been built upon year-on-year, and upheld through the many fundraising efforts of golf days, overseas golfing trips, dinners and awards evenings.
Withington, Northenden and Davyhulme Park Golf Club have all organised outstanding events throughout the year with great prizes, excellent player turnout and generous sponsors. Other highlights from recent events include:
Stockport Golf Day
A regular on the golf day calendar, our very own Golf event saw twenty enthusiastic teams taking part in the 26th Annual Francis House golf tournament at the prestigious Stockport Golf Club.
The day was kindly sponsored again by Hot Holidays. A total of £10,600 was raised thanks to all the players, sponsors and volunteers. The event next year is scheduled for Thursday 5th September 2019.
Francis Kirk Group Golf Day
Denton-based Francis Kirk Group held a successful charity golf day part of a two-year fundraising initiative. The event at Davenport Golf Club attracted more than eighty golfers and was packed with opportunities to win spot prizes like nearest the pin on the four par threes, longest drive on the 11th hole and Beat the Pro on the scenic 14th.
Francis Kirk attracted sponsors for every hole and sourced a great selection of auction and raffle prizes with the support of Old Trafford, Ollier Photography and Arighi Bianchi in Macclesfield.
“The weather was perfect and we had fantastic support from players and sponsors. It was a pleasure to organise.”Tom Kirk, Managing director of Francis Kirk Group
